An activist group whose leaders object to the beliefs of Pat Buchanan, a senior adviser to three American presidents, a candidate for the Republican nomination in 1992 and 1996, and the Reform Partys presidential candidate in 2000, is announcing victory in its campaign to have the author of multiple best-selling books removed from MSNBC.
ColorOfChange.org welcomes MSNBCs decision to indefinitely supend (sic) Pat Buchanan, ColorOfChange.org Executive Director Rashad Robinson posted in an online statement.

Many of us also think Pat is a bit nutty, but to deserve this? Must have really gotten under some Rat’s skin.

those darn Robinson’
Well ColorOfChange has made a difference! I just bought Pat’s book, if they are this thrilled with his suspension, then this will be one of the best reads of the year.
I’m reading his latest. Very depressing. But timely and informative.
Color of Change was co-founded in 2005 by James Rucker and Van Jones. Rucker had previously been Director of Grassroots Mobilization for MoveOn.org Political Action and MoveOn.org Civic Action (20032005). Van Jones is the founder and executive director of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights. Van Jones left the organization several years later to move on to other pursuits, such as Green For All. Color of Change emerged in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, and was a leading advocate of the Jena Six, helping that cause gain increased media, national, and international attention. Color of Change is still working on issues associated with the aftermath of Katrina, particularly the availability of housing to those whose homes were lost or damaged. One of COC's current campaigns is garnering support for Senate bill S.1668, which would repair and open thousands of minimally damaged public housing units.
Looks like good ol' Van finally got someone thrown off the air. Too bad it was a bit player who hasn't had a real following in 20 years. If Buchanan didn't do occasional interviews on Hannity's radio show, no one would know he was still alive. MSNBC has no viewership.
“...Many of us also think Pat is a bit nutty...”
That’s a Hell of a way to defend one of our guys...”Nutty?” Why are using the left’s language on one of our people?
“Death of the West” laid out very clearly what is happening to the country that our ancestors fought, bled and died to create.
Pat isn’t “nutty” by a long shot. He’s been one of the only people to vocalize what the left and their La Raza and other subversive organizations are doing to us.
No quarrel with you HiTech, but I don’t think we should give the leftards any more ammunition by using their lexicon.
THEY’RE the REAL f*ing nuts...you know?
Ya gotta love those open minded folks on the left. The protectors of free speech. /sar
I’ll have to buy a few copies of his book so I and some of my friends/family can see what all the fuss is about.
Buchanan is truly a patriot.
I refuse to be politically correct for anybody.
Nobody would know who appears on MSNBC if it wasn’t commented on on the internet.
I have to admit that I’m going to need to wait until I read Pat’s latest book, after it comes out in the original German.
Nutty doesn't even begin to describe his views and prejudices on Jews, Israel and those seeking Israel's destruction.
Pat must not meet the “high journolistic principles” of MSNBS.
MSNBC? Who knew he was on MSNBC? What happened — can’t Pat get a real job?
Pat has been “defined” by the Leftist media whose sole purpose is the destruction of America’s principles.
Sorry to see that even fellow Freepers have fallen for their slander against an patriotic American...
Is there some sort of Leftist mind control ray that forces Pat to sit down and pen Jew hating rants? I don't remember any Leftists complaining about it. They likely approve.
Color of Change went after Glenn Beck’s sponsors when he was on Fox News Channnel.
